Different Croaks for Different Folks by Shigeki Oyama
Book DescriptionThis engaging colour illustrated book explores the difficulties faced by 'frogs with a different croak'. Aimed at children with autism and related spectrum conditions, Teacher Toad's lessons pick up on social and physical difficulties and the kind of behaviours that can get young frogs into trouble. Each lesson gives practical advice on issues covering everything from hard-to-break habits to physical coordination difficulties. Without using 'labels', Midori Ochiai writes about a range of conditions in a child-friendly, non-threatening way that encourages a positive and fun approach to understanding, accepting and accommodating difference. A helpful appendix provides background information. Ideal for reading with children, this book will be helpful to parents and professionals.

Author Biography - Shigeki Oyama
Midori Ochiai lives in Japan and was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (AS) at the age of 41. Based on her experiences of raising two sons - the elder also has AS and the younger has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - she wrote Different Croaks for Different Folks and initially published it on her website, attracting the attention of parents of children with autism and other developmental disorders. She assisted the authors of The Manual for Special Supportive Education for Autistic Children and continues to offer support to parents of children with developmental disorders through her website. She currently writes about the education of children on the autism spectrum.
